Thousands Flee Violence In Kyrgyzstan

An estimated 80,000 ethnic Uzbeks have fled the ongoing clashes against ethnic Kyrgyz, causing one aid official to describe the situation as a “humanitarian catastrophe.” At least 114 people have been killed in the clashes, and another 1,458 have been wounded. The United Nations says it is sending an emergency team to Uzbekistan to aid refugees who crossed the border. The Uzbek government estimates that 75,000 people have fled into the country since Friday, slightly below Red Cross estimates. Kyrgyzstan hosts a U.S. military transport base that is vital for supplying its troops in Afghanistan. It also has a Russian military base and strategically important natural gas pipelines.
